2019 North Texas Parking Management Symposium - Finding the Balance in Parking
August 15, 2019 - 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Hurst Conference Center - 1601 Campus Dr., Hurst TX 76054
The North Texas Parking Management Symposium is an opportunity for North Texas planning and development professionals to learn, discuss, and advance parking management knowledge. North Texans are highly dependent on their cars for mobility, but with the rising cost of urban land and potential mobility disruptions, the status quo of unmanaged free parking creates major challenges to growth. The question becomes: how do we plan and manage parking in a way that balances the needs and goals of a community while acknowledging economic forces that drive parking demand and the future of mobility?
Six CM credits will be offered.

NCTCOG’s Parking Management activities support local parking management plans and policies that create efficient and customer service oriented parking that consumes less land while meeting flexible parking demand.
Why does North Texas need parking management?
- Improve transportation system performance through addressing parking’s impact on development
- Allow for highest and best use of land in key locations which increases jobs and housing access
- Prepare for potential impact of automated vehicles which may significantly reduce future parking need
Encouraging active parking management can help North Texas achieve a more efficient transportation system and a more sustainable region. The links below summarize resources and events focused on parking management:
